Created in 2006, SASMO is one of the largest math contests in Asia. The SASMO Team with the support of the Advisory Council spends countless hours carefully developing contest papers that will touch on both school and Olympiad maths. This combined effort allow participants to do better compared to pure-Olympiad papers, since they are familiar with some questions and are able to put on their thinking caps for others, bringing out the inner mathematician in them.
With realistic and high standards, SASMO contests aim to stretch the untapped thinking potential of the student population, their participation in SASMO will help them improve in school mathematics as well as higher-order thinking skills (HOTS).
SASMO is a math olympiad contest that stretches not only the brightest students but is aimed at instilling confidence for all students. This is a perfect opportunity for Canadian students to compete with their counterparts.
The contest is designed in a way to make every student love Math again. SASMO contest fits nicely into the school curriculum with a high focus on non-routine problem sums – preparing for the SASMO contest helps students prepare for the higher level exams such as SSAT.
SASMO aims to arouse students’ interest in mathematical problem solving to develop mathematical intuition, reasoning, logic, creativity, and critical thinking.

CKSTEM is motivated to prepare Canadian students to help Canada become a world leader in science and technology. We have partnered with Singapore International Mastery Challenge Center (SIMCC) in Canada to achieve this goal. SIMCC is one of Asia's most prominent academic contests organizers to groom and identify talent. We are committed to offering more opportunities for all students to gain international recognition through academic competitions.
CKSTEM will provide specialized training for the students grades 2-3 to prepare for this and many other math contests. This training will be for the school year 2022-23. Training will be 35 weeks long, from September 2022 to June 2023. Each class will be 60 minutes long. Critical features for this training will include the following:
One demo class provided in May-June 2022
Engaging curriculum focused on creative problem solving
Learn through challenging problems, drills, and puzzles
Weekly assignment to practice problem-solving techniques
Learn to compete through monthly practice contests
Participation in 3 or more national and international contests
